Safeguarding

Many people are afraid to report worrying signs they have seen or heard.  The Government has launched a campaign - https://tacklechildabuse.campaign.gov.uk/ - which aims to help tackle the barriers so that children can get the help they need;  it outlines some of the signs to spot, what to do and what will happen.  As the campaign says "You don’t have to be absolutely certain about your suspicions; if you’re concerned a child is being abused or their safety is at risk, speak to someone".
